New Zealand's premium calf milk replacer since 1966. Manufactured right here in New Zealand to Fonterra's stringent standards, you can look forward to consistent quality.

If bottle feeding from birth, it is important that colostrum is fed to cria within 6 hours of birth and then for at least 2 days.

If alpaca colostrum is not available then colostrum from deer, goats or cows may be used. Alternatively, Jumpstart™ Full Cream Colostrum is available from your rural retailer.

Feeding recommendations
  • Unlike many other infant animals, cria will stop feeding when they are full, so it is best to offer them more than you expect them to drink.
  • Mix 200 grams¹ of lamb milk replacer (LMR) per litre of water.
  • Add lamb milk replacer (LMR) to one third of the required volume of water and mix thoroughly.
  • Top up with water to the correct volume and temperature.
  • Clean fresh water should be available at all times.

These tables are a guide only.

Age Feeds per day Milk per feed (mL) Grams per feed (g) Daily volume (L)
1 day 6 As per Jumpstart™ instructions
2-4 days 6 150mL 30g 0.9L

  • Some rearers have reported increasing this concentration if weight gain is not adequate.
  • Cria should be fed colostrum for atleast the first 2 days. Anlamb™ should only be fed during this time if no form of colostrum is available.
  • Bottle fed cria often wean themselves earlier than naturally suckled cria. This may happen from around 3 months.
